Extreme Makeover-Home Edition! OUR WOMEN VETERANS!

by Kathy Sykes on September 23, 2011 · 4 comments

Do you watch the Extreme Makeover-Home Edition series? Well, if you are not a regular viewer, you MUST watch this Sunday’s episode. It is dedicated to our homeless women veterans. Yes, I said HOMELESS VETERANS. That sounds kinda ridiculous doesn’t it. How in the world can we, as Americans, let any veteran go without? It is my belief that anyone who voluntarily chooses to serve our country, putting their own family second and their safety in jeopardy, deserves all of the benefits that our country can offer them. No veteran should come home from active duty to find no job, home, medical assistance, etc. These should be the expected benefits to serving your country, without question. But, we all know that this is not the case.

I was able to get a sneak peek of this Sunday’s episode of Extreme Makeover-Home Edition and it was truly one that was much needed and well deserved. Here is the trailer teaser for you to view:

 

Our First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, is terrific in taking part in assisting our homeless veteran women in finding jobs, homes, and ways to support their families. This has been her agenda since the beginning of her husband’s presidency. Every individual should take it upon themselves to help a veteran if you see one in need. Not only for the work and sacrifice that veterans have given our country, but because we are AMERICANS and that is what we do!

Be Sociable, Share!

Dear Mrs. Obama, I truely feel that you are our best first lady we have had in a long time. You seem to put your children and husband first! That, in my book, is your first job!
How can you follow a TV show, that does help alot of families, that is helping our HOMELESS WOMAN VETERANS????? These woman should not be HOMELESS!!! Please ask our president to pass laws that will make sure this doesn’t happen to our vets!!!! They are the most deserving bunch!!!! Please, help our Vets!!!!

Thank you very much,

It’s called the Jubilee House in Fayetteville,NC. They provide shelter for homeless women veterans and job coaching/searching. They desperately need help to keep our women veterans motivated and comfortable
